Idli Masala fry

Idli ,Dosa,Wada  make a wonderful breakfast .There are so many dishes prepared from leftover  Idlis.
When I was in college one of my friend had taken me to a cart which is very popular for idli fry..The moment i tasted this idli fry I became a huge fan of it and a regular customer..What attracted me was the way he use to prepare this and adds dollops of Amul Butter ..

After few years we had made idlis for breakfast and there were some left out ,usually  use to just deep fry and sprinkle some chat masala and enjoy it but then I was tempted to make the same Idli fry i loved eating so i gave it a try and to my surprise it actually tasted better than what I use to have it in the cart.

Its a very simple recipe and gets ready in no time,The ingredients are also available easily at home.So next time u have leftover idlis at home make this..


5-6 idlis
1 small capsicum finely chopped
 2 medium sized tomatoes
1  small onion chopped
1 green chilli (optional)
1 tsp masala/pav bhaji masala
1/2 tsp coriander powder
1/4 tsp cumin powder
1/2 tsp cumin seeds
2 tbsp butter or more.
coriander leaves to garnish.


In a non stick pan/tawa add 1 tbsp butter and 1 tsp oil add the cumin seeds

Then add the onions , chopped chilli, capsicum and fry well .

Then add tomatoes and mash it up with a potato masher.

Add all the powdered masala and the crumbled idlis and 1 tbsp butter mash keep mashing all ,the same way we  mash vegetables as we make pav bhaji.

 Garnish with coriander  leaves and serve hot with a dollop of butter.
